'Tis the season to overindulge

With the introduction of Thanksgiving we officially kicked off the season of indulgence.  My weakness has always been dessert and this Thanksgiving proved no different with multiple pies to choose from (my personal favorite being pumpkin with a ginger snap crust).  Once we have polished off all of the Thanksgiving leftovers I felt a strong desire for a meal that did not make me feel like I needed to increase my pants size. So, it was destiny when I turned the page in our newspaper and stumbled upon this vegetable soup recipe by Ellie Krieger, a fellow RD, who just happens to be one of my favorite food professionals.  This soup provided just the right nourishment to the soul along with a healthy dose of protein from the chickpeas.  I highly recommend “indulging” in the soup.
